If you’re new to MARTA or not sure how to get to a destination on transit, figuring out what bus or train to use and what direction to go can be a bit confusing. Luckily, there are several MARTA trip planning options to help you get from point A to point B:
The recommended option for MARTA trip planning is Google Maps. Get directions on a smartphone or computer by typing in your start and end destination and clicking on the transit icon to get MARTA directions vs. driving directions.
Benefits of Google Maps include:
- Total commute time
- Approximate walking time
- Time on the bus or train (including number of stops)
- Ability to choose the day and time you wish to depart or arrive
- Ability to save the trip directions to your Google Calendar for easy reference
In addition to MARTA rail and buses, bus schedules for GRTA Xpress and Cobb Community Transit are also in Google Maps for easy regional trip planning.
Phone or Email
If trip planning online is difficult or not very accessible, MARTA also offers a trip planning service through the phone. Call 404-848-5000 for assistance, though sometimes staff does not answer phones. Email is often a better method: firstname.lastname@example.org.
